P229 magazine repair?!
Hi, I recently acquired a P229 in .40 S&W. I really enjoy the pistol, having lots of safe fun.
After 3 trips to the range/hills, I decided to try to clean the magazines instead of just the pistol. I opened one up, following the instructions in the manual, it was pretty simple.
Cleaned it, and when I tried to put it back together, the magazine follower does not get pushed all the way up the magazine tube by spring anymore.
I put my other mag next to the broken one for easy comparison, I am sure you all know what they are supposed to look like without it.
I dont want to take apart my other mag yet until I get another new one, or fix my busted one. I would hate to bust my one good one and be without a mag. Does anyone have a good video, pdf, some advice?
I will be taking apart the magazine again to try and fiddle with it, hopefully I dont damage it more. I am pretty sure the spring might be bent, I can feel it getting caught before it reaches the top of the tube.
Thanks, and happy holidays!
